This is my SECOND winter in Beijing d. Anyway, to counter the cold dry weather, i normally change to the thicker BG65, maintaining it at my regular 29lbs. So far it works. The other alternative will be NBG98 but in China, NBG98 is not available, so cheapest and realistic solution is to change to BG65 during winter, while not sacrificing your tension.

Arc ZS after 20 hours play
After accumulated 20 hours of play using the Arc Z i must say.......i am starting to LIKE IT!!!.
I dunno how to put it, this afternoon everything just click in. The smash, the overhead clears, the drives, even the net plays, net kiils, drops. And the best "feel" is once everything clicked, ur overall game play actually speed up a lot. It was noticed even by my club captain.
Hope this is because finally i got used to the Arc Z and the reward it brings, Will test again this Tuesday to make sure it wasnt a ONE OFF lucky day for me.
Till then, stay tune.....
TODAY MY ARC Z ROCKS BIG TIME!!!

ArcSaber Z-Slash - First Review
I bought my ArcSaber Z Slash yesterday... There was a $40 member discount offer going at the club I play at and it cost me $206 total including tax.
I had it strung at 26lbs strength allowing the racket to get a little seasoned and check if itz holds up. If you like a slightly heavier head, try a heavier string. I played for a couple of hours with it and the feel of the racket is very good. It is well balanced, lighter head and it plays fast. If you are player with a weaker wrist, I wouldn't recommend this beauty as the racket is rather stiff with little flexi-action. The head of the racket is slightly smaller than itz predecessor, hence your sweet spot is also smaller. The Red, Yellow color is jarring, yet fancy.

It might replace and bump off the Zelm and LN from your personal rankings. Ha ha. Enjoy testing and logging in the hours.
I got about 60 hours of it (ZS) and I must say it definitely suits me as I always bring along ovals to alternate with isos to crossover and bridge the feel when transitioning to the ISOval Arc ZS. Btw, I logged in about 6 hours of play with Carbonex 35 and I thought it's a compromise between a Cab 20 and 21 (can't say about Cab 30 Muscle cos I don't own one). Cab 35 definitely is no Ti-10 in terms of feel.
P.S. Tnx on the zelm info. How about Carlton Vapour Elite and Tour versions, have you had the chance to playtest it in beijing? Are they even available over there at your end?

I collected money since february and was to buy an ARC10 but this one was just so tempting, ^_^
at first, the timing of the racquet was a problem.
I often swung it too earlier.
It's small sweetspot also poses mishits during power shots such as smashing.
But the control and defence was superb and the small frame didn't pose for these kind o shots. Yonex says that this racquet can like 'max' my smash level something like that
After a few more days, it just improves.
I stop myself from expecting strong smashes everytime I smash the shuttle (commercial power, ^_^) and it helps me a lot to get use to the racquet. My smashes then got stronger. Combined with the control and defence, it was just exciting playing with this racquet. Like others said, it is an unforgiving racquet when mishits.
All in all, this is one racquet that can surely deliver. It might not be good for others but for me it sure got power and control. Not a fan of the colour but it still a good looking one. There's still more for me to exploit with this racquet .
